ORTLIEB mends free of charge everything they get under the hot air dryer! Bring your ORTLIEB bags and backpacks by at the stand (G30) in Europaallee on Gustav Gull Platz.

Discovering, traveling, cycling, being out and about - that's how it all started.
And that's what everything still revolves around today...

Adventure and responsibly discovering nature is what everything at ORTLIEB is about. It's the unforgettable moments we experience on bike trips or trekking tours that spur us on every day to create the best and most durable products for the outdoor enthusiast. Of course 100% waterproof, always looking for the next innovation for your adventure!

This was also the drive of Hartmut Ortlieb in the early 80s, to go on trips himself, to explore the world and of course to have the best equipment for it. And that is still what drives us today to produce waterproof and patented bags and backpacks that make all this possible, regardless of the weather. No matter whether for the bike trip or the way to work.

In the meantime, we have 40 years of experience in the field of waterproof. Not only the manufacturing technology is special at ORTLIEB, a large number of patents are filed every year, the ideas never run out. The roll closure, with which countless fashionable bags and backpacks are equipped today, also originates from ORTLIEB. The legal disputes up to the Federal Court of Justice against Amazon, a snapshot. The development of the ORTLIEB brand, for many a matter of the heart. Uniqueness is certainly also shown in the most diverse facets, which many of the long-standing employees perceive as a matter of course. "Made in Germany" is what ORTLIEB Sportartikel GmbH is known for, but what really lies behind it and the depth to which this is understood at ORTLIEB is no banality.

Our roots and our future in one place - Made in Germany.
No matter what language: Around the world, people understand ORTLIEB as the honest promise of waterproof, durable outdoor equipment. Our bags travel the globe, but when it comes to their development and manufacture, we deliberately opt for short distances. All waterproof products are manufactured at our factory in Heilsbronn, Franconia, because "Made in Germany" is our brand promise for high quality, regional jobs, environmentally friendly production, respectful cooperation and high innovation. 90% of all processes are located "in-house" at ORTLIEB, from design to construction, mechanical engineers, marketing and product management to sales. This allows us to constantly optimize processes and guarantee that every step is as environmentally friendly as possible.

But what is it always about? About you! Keep dry what you love!

5 year warranty
ORTLIEB products have the reputation of being indestructible. This durability is very important for the sustainability rating of products. On material and workmanship we give a warranty of 5 years, so far beyond the legally required warranty. The very long durability of ORTLIEB products enables us to effectively save resources for our customers.
Repairability is also a fundamental sustainability indicator for products. If it does happen that a defect arises or an individual part wears out, the components are designed in such a way that they can be repaired without any problems. Defective parts can be easily replaced, holes patched, connectors replaced and webbing renewed. For this purpose, we have our own in-house repair department, where ORTLIEB products are made fit again for intensive, demanding use. Older products can be upgraded to the latest technology there. We also stock spare parts for articles from older collections for at least another ten years.

You want to have your old ORTLIEB bag made fit again?
At CYCLE WEEK, from Thursday, May 12 to Saturday, May 14, Ortlieb will breathe new life into your bags, panniers and backpacks - free of charge. Come by the ORTLIEB booth (G30) in the Europaallee on Gustav Gull Platz.
